The filter is a question. Since you aren't printing to a printer, you woon't
use the same filter you would use for a real print queue. What format will
the print job arrive in? What format do you want it to be once it is in the
Run  checkpc -f to make sure things look right.
Don't forget, after you make these changes, you have to restart lpd.
